Forum: computerchronicles Subject: What happened to your Creative Commons support?

Why you are no longer supporting Creative Commons? I ask since there are lots of people here asking for permissions and no one is bothering to respond. In addition the Internet Archive's embedded player does NOT allow me to have it play at a specific time within the video and has other limitations.

I never noticed you had stopped your Creative Commons support until today. As you can see from a post I wrote in 2008 (I was going back and performing some cleanup on old posts) I had embedded an episode. Within that embed code is this which displays links to your Internet Archive collection as well as to the Creative Commons license:

Computer Chronicles Collection: Creative Commons license: Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs

While it now appears that you are licensing this Computer Chronicles content commercially, I can only assume that sharing, participation, historical and other uses now get in the way of that. Please let me know if this is an erroneous assumption on my part and what did, in fact, lie behind the decision to no longer support CC, and if you are willing to reinstate it.

CC licensing is available on you can assign a CC license in the "Edit item" metadata form page.

Users who upload content choose whether to assign a license and if they do they choose what license to assign.

why is it you think it is not supported?
